MOST BEAUTIFUL VILLAGES OF ENGLAND


MOST BEAUTIFUL VILLAGES OF ENGLAND

JAMES BENTLEY    Book Number: 84669    Product format: Paperback

Away from the high rise and concrete of our big towns and cities, it is good to remember that there are still corners of England that have kept their charm. Our villages are quintessentially English, usually with a village green, a duck pond, a church, a pub and a cluster of cottages, often thatched. Many date back to Anglo-Saxon times, and have their own special traditions such as maypole dancing and fairs. Villages have tea rooms, curio shops, village stores and, above all, lots of flowers, trees and greenery. Covering selected villages from Northern, Midland, Eastern, Southern and Western counties, here you can delight in Clovelley's steep lanes, Mevagissey's harbour, Weobly's 14th century Red Lion pub and the amazing complexity of the half-timbering of Pitchford Hall at Acton Burnell. Roam amongst the daffodils as Wordsworth once did at Hawkshead, delight in the reflections in Aldbury's duck pond or admire the elegant spire of the church of St. Margaret, Hemingford Abbots. With a lively text and filled with glorious photos by Hugh Palmer, this is one to browse through when you crave beauty. Softback, 208pp. 285 spectacular colour illus.
